Tom Stanton Electromagnetic Rail Launcher
Aerospace engineer Tom Stanton was interested in recreating the Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS), a type of aircraft launching system developed by General Atomics for the United States Navy, but on a smaller scale. Simply put, it’s designed to launch carrier-based aircraft by means of a catapult employing a linear induction motor instead of the conventional steam piston.



Tom Stanton’s electromagnetic rail launcher consists of a series of coils and magnets that are connected to a hall effect sensor as well we an external control board. Hardened steel bolts were used to increase the magnetic strength of the coils, while a custom aluminum heatsink was used to keep everything cool. However, a number of these electromagnetic coils were required to get the sled moving quick enough to launch something.
